3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12 oz). Extra from John, thanks! Clear golden with a small diminishing white head and no lacing. Aroma of pineapple, floral, candi sugar and light peppery notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with pineapple, floral, candi sugar, malt and light peppery notes. Medium body. Ok Saison. Not fancy, but sessionnable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle split in 3. Hazy orange-tan. Funky orange, some odd tropical undertones. Peppery. Not a perfect Saison, some sugary sweet malt tones, not so zest of effervescent. Pineapple-lemon-herb flavors. OK.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I get that lemon cough drop thing on the aroma..not in a bad way..citrusy and slight spice...pure yellow hazy with pure white head that dissipates,some lacing...good taste lemony,citrusy,a bit of yeast,maybe slightly less spicy than some but that means more refreshing too..palate is thin bodied with light carbonation..overall a great summer beer and although similar to most saison or farmhouse ales has its own character

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2015 Draft at Moriartys. May 2013. Pint. Hazy hay pour with soft white foam. Wet lace. Feels a bit like a medium dark wheat beer with some earthy notes. Not a traditional Saison but has some interesting flavors. Oranges spiked with cloves. Bread dough. Truffles. Apricots. Sage. Mushrooms. Rosemary. Dry up front. Sweet in the middle. Balanced in the finish. Unusual. UPDATE: Having again at Moriartys in May 2015. Not sure if this is because I just had a couple high-hopped IPAs immediately prior but the Saison tastes undrinkably sweet to me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/22/13, Palindromic Rating #2992
Aroma: The nose has Belgiany-type yeast, pepper/spice, some citrus rind, and light funk
Appearance: Pours a hazed bright orange color with a small white head and light/drippy lace
Flavor: The flavor is medium sweet and plenty spicy, with a light funk, and mild bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a lively carbonation, and a dry, spicy finish
I thought this was a pretty solid beer. It has a pretty nice nose/flavor, a solid feel, and a nice drinkability. It isn’t an exceptional beer, but it is plenty tasty.
